It was in 1979 when Charles Angles planted the first vines on the grounds of his home in Sant Lluís. Over time, what began as a hobby (to enjoy the wine made by oneself) has become a way of life. Today there are about five hectares with vineyards merlot, cabernet sauvignon and syrah, as well as the white varieties Chardonnay and Muscat.
In 2004 opened a modern winery designed by the Catalan architect Lluís Vives. The warehouse is divided into two floors, dedicated to developing superior and inferior, carved in sandstone, where lie the European oak casks. Its wines have achieved a position in the letter of prestigious restaurants such as El Bulli’s Ferran Adrià. At present, it is the largest producer of the island.
The vineyards are located in the south of the island, the estate Binifadet Nou, characterized by a limestone subsoil marès, limestone typical of Menorca, covered by a layer of stones and clay. This type of soil, with a high calcium content usually has good aeration and good drainage, ideal for varieties like chardonnay.
Farm plots Binifadet Nou, are closed by dry stone walls that protect plants from northern Tramontana wind so characteristic of the island.
